Johnny Depp throws his hat off and joins the TaTaTu platform.


Hollywood star Johnny Depp has signed a contract with a new platform related to cryptocurrencies called TaTaTu. The platform, like Depp himself, aims to provide social entertainment.


"New approach" to entertainment


TaTaTu is a cryptocurrency based platform that rewards users in tokens as payment for interacting with certain content, such as movies and games (according to its website). A press release announced today that Depp will work together with Andrea Iervolino on the project.

The Hollywood reporter Iervolino is a businessman, entrepreneur and film producer of the TaTaTu platform. In addition, he manages the AMBI Media Group with Monica Bacardi. Depp also previously founded production company Infinitum Nihil, which he will use to create films and content for the TaTaTu platform.


Ivervolino and Depp together


Depp and Iervolino already have something in common, and they shoot the film together at the end of this month, prepared by Iervolino and his production company (AMBI), explained The Hollywood Reporter. The film “Waiting for the Barbarians” is based on the novel by J. M. Koetzi.

According to IMDB, Depp had previously received nominations for three Oscars and nine Golden Globe awards, while at the same time winning one Golden Globe award, as well as ten People's Choice awards . Involving crypto-valoris with TaTaTu gives a new potential for success for an actor.


Attention celebrities associated with Crypto


Depp joins a small number of celebrities who have shown interest in the space of cryptocurrency and blockchain.

Earlier this year, Stephen Sigal and his relationship with the ICO were reported, specifically working with Bitcoin . But then he stopped work, because he learned that it may be illegal .

At the end of last year, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced a statement about celebrities investing in ICO:

"These investments may be illegal if they do not disclose the nature, source and amount of any compensation paid by the cryptocurrency company in exchange for this investment."


Another celebrity attraction


ICOUnikrn, supported by Mark Kuban, was also criticized when suing "for allegedly neglecting violations of federal securities, offering UniquinGold Tokens (UKG) to the general public, and not just to accredited investors."

Other celebrities like Paris Hilton and Jamie Fox are also listed.

And, of course, how was it possible to forget when Katy Perry made her nails from cryptocurrency signs, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, in fact expressed her approval of the cryptocurrency as a whole.
